    * Requires storm_social_icons_use_latest be turned on. (See below.)

    Changing Icon Appearance

    If you want to edit the appearance of the icons in ways that the options below don’t provide, you can do more with custom CSS to match your theme. This video walks through the process:

    Option: Add Vimeo and Stack Exchange

    To use FontAwesome 4.0+, which drops support for IE7, but adds and, add this to your theme’s functions.php file:
    add_filter( ‘storm_social_icons_use_latest’, ‘__return_true’ );

    Option: Show Text

    To show menu item text in addition to the icons, add this to your theme’s functions.php file:
    add_filter( ‘storm_social_icons_hide_text’, ‘__return_false’ );

    Option: Alternate Icons

    To show an alternative icon style, where logos are cut out of signs, , add this to your theme’s functions.php file:
    add_filter( ‘storm_social_icons_type’, create_function( ”, ‘return “icon-sign”;’ ) );

    Option: Icon Sizes

    To vary icon sizes, add this to your theme’s functions.php file: (Default is 2x)

    add_filter( 'storm_social_icons_size', create_function( '', 'return "normal";' ) );
    add_filter( 'storm_social_icons_size', create_function( '', 'return "large";' ) );
    add_filter( 'storm_social_icons_size', create_function( '', 'return "2x";' ) );
    add_filter( 'storm_social_icons_size', create_function( '', 'return "3x";' ) );
    add_filter( 'storm_social_icons_size', create_function( '', 'return "4x";' ) );

    Option: Add More Icons

    Add icons from FontAwesome for other URLs. For example, an RSS feed:

    add_filter( 'storm_social_icons_networks', 'storm_social_icons_networks');
    function storm_social_icons_networks( $networks ) {
        $extra_icons = array (
            '/feed' => array(                  // Enable this icon for any URL containing this text
                'name' => 'RSS',               // Default menu item label
                'class' => 'rss',              // Custom class
                'icon' => 'icon-rss',          // FontAwesome class
                'icon-sign' => 'icon-rss-sign' // May not be available. Check FontAwesome.
        $extra_icons = array_merge( $networks, $extra_icons );
        return $extra_icons;

    Option: Change HTML Output

    This is useful for developers using the plugin with custom icon sets.

    Edit icon HTML output:

    add_filter( 'storm_social_icons_icon_html', 'storm_social_icons_icon_html', 10, 4 );
    function storm_social_icons_icon_html( $html, $size, $icon, $show_text ) {
        $html = "<i class='$size $icon $show_text'></i>";
        return $html;

    Edit title HTML output:

    add_filter( 'storm_social_icons_title_html', 'storm_social_icons_title_html', 10, 2 );
    function storm_social_icons_title_html( $html, $title ){
        $html = "<span class='fa-hidden'>$title</span>";
        return $html;

    Edit all link attributes (WordPress core filter):

    add_filter( 'wp_nav_menu_objects', 'storm_wp_nav_menu_objects', 7, 2 );
    function storm_wp_nav_menu_objects( $sorted_menu_items, $args ){
        foreach( $sorted_menu_items as &$item ) {
            if ( 0 != $item->menu_item_parent ) {
                // Skip submenu items
            // Only apply changes to links containing this text.
            $search_url = '';
            if ( false !== strpos( $item->url, $search_url ) ) {
                // Add a custom class
                $item->classes[] = 'some-custom-class';
                // Add custom HTML inside the link
                $item->title = '<strong>custom html</strong>' . $item->title;
        return $sorted_menu_items;
